SI Indoor & Outdoor Shades Roll Out Nationally
Screen Innovations (SI) has undertaken a full national rollout of the Nano indoor and Zen outdoor roller shade lines it soft-launched six months ago. In addition, it has announced simplified methods for dealers to carry the lines as authorized dealers, offering those who are interested six program options that, according to Tom Cooley, the company’s COO, will “affordably bring on dealers without interrupting their daily businesses.”
To support the ramp-up, SI recently doubled its Austin, Texas production footprint, saying that it has added enough space to scale for the next five years. In addition, high-precision, high-volume production machinery has been installed to facilitate fast order-to-shipment conversion, enabling the delivery of custom shades with speed to the CEDIA channel.
The Nano small shade line is 2.50 inches tall and rechargeable with an embedded lithium motor that the company says is capable of more than 500 open and close cycles on a single charge. Eighteen color options are available.
The Zen outdoor line offers a sealed enclosure design that protects the shades from insects; that line comes in nine exterior colors.
